Former prosecutor Mangum forms solo practice

Jameika Williams Mangum
McHenry County Assistant State’s Attorney Jameika Williams Mangum has resigned to form The Mangum Law Firm, LLC. As an Assistant State’s Attorney, Ms. Mangum handled a variety of matters ranging from traffic to domestic violence. Prior to joining the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office, Ms. Mangum was an Assistant District Attorney for the state of New Mexico. While there, Ms. Mangum handled misdemeanors in the city of Albuquerque. Ms. Mangum is a former Law Clerk of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The Mangum Law Firm, LLC is a general practice firm, with a focus on Traffic, Family, and Criminal law. Amid the recession, Mangum is excited about the new practice, and looks forward to serving residents and businesses in Illinois. In response to criticism about the timing of the formation, Mangum states, “I’m well aware of the fact that the practice of law is not recession proof, but I’m excited about being available to cater to the needs of Illinois residents with legal issues.” Ms. Mangum is an active member of the Illinois State Bar Association (ISBA), and has recently been appointed to the ISBA Assembly seat serving Cook County. Mangum serves on the Criminal Justice Section Council, and the Standing Committee on Racial and Ethnic Minorities and the Law of the ISBA. In addition, Mangum is a member of the American Bar Association and the Northwest Suburban Bar Association. Ms. Mangum received a Bachelor of Arts in Communication from the University of Southern California’s (USC) Annenberg School for Communication, and a Juris Doctor from Whittier Law School.
